Short-Term Borrowings and Long-Term Debt
In addition to our Facility, we have the capacity to borrow up to an additional $97.2 million under local overdraft facilities. Amounts outstanding are presented in the debt table presented above.
On June 29, 2017, we issued and sold an aggregate principal amount of €350.0 million of senior unsecured notes ("Euro Notes") as a private placement to certain institutional investors in an offering exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The fixed-rate Euro Notes have 10-year and 12-year maturities as reported in the table above. The proceeds, net of debt issuance costs, were $393.2 million, using June 29, 2017 exchange rates, and were used to reduce outstanding borrowings on our Facility.
The Euro Notes are unsecured obligations and rank equally in right of payment with all of our existing and future unsubordinated indebtedness, including our guarantee under the Facility.
As of September 30, 2017, our issuer and senior unsecured ratings are investment grade: BBB (stable outlook) from Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services and Baa1 (stable outlook) from Moody’s Investors Service, Inc.
Our Facility and senior notes are subject to customary financial and other covenants, including cash interest coverage ratios and leverage ratios, as well as event of default conditions. We remained in compliance with all covenants as of September 30, 2017.
